Digital body manipulation and the use of extreme Photoshop is fairly common in print, but this this funny College Humor video takes it to a whole other level.

The video stars off with a gorgeous model and announces that it will be showing Photoshop in reverse. In a few moments, the woman goes from being thin to plus size, to looking like a burn victim, but the Photoshopping doesn't stop there.

College Humor continues with the excessive digital manipulations by turning the woman's red bikini into three round very pepperoni-like circles... then her mottled skin starts to look more and more like a pizza. Since she was initally posed with both of her hands behind her head, it doesn't take much more work to complete the radical transformation from woman to slice of pizza.
